Walker grew up cycling and snowboarding in his hometown of Breckenridge, Colorado, and was able to pursue both on a professional level in the U.S. and overseas. After stepping away from his sports career and with the strong relationships he built over the years, he started working with friends and former teammates. His success caught the eye of Wasserman Media Group, the largest representation firm in the world. This expanded his knowledge to further his career working with Olympic and Endurance Athletes. Walker earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Affairs from the University of Colorado Boulder.
